Several students at a New Jersey school were sickened by a relaxation drink named after reggae icon Bob Marley.

Holmdel Township officials have since removed the drink from the school.

Marley’s Mellow Mood is promoted to reduce stress. The drink’s label say it may cause drowsiness and is not intended for children.

The shipment was mistakenly delivered to Satz Middle School and Holmdel High School, where students bought the drink on campus. Several middle school students became sick after drinking the beverage.

The school district’s food service provider has removed a manager pending an investigation. Chartwells School Dining Services has also removed the Marley product.

The company issued a statement saying it takes this situation very seriously.
